Version 1.4
My fear of flying deemed it necessary to download a couple of new apps. Glad I did, as this one pulls you in so well I hardly noticed I was on the plane! Home and back to normal now but still doing Querkles!!

Luv querkles

Version 1.4
Love this app, can nip in for either 10 mins or can easily pass a good hour away, could do with adding some more pics to it though

Painting by numbers with a difference!

Version 1.3
Great app for colouring in lovers. Even though you know what the picture is supposed to look like, because you choose the five colours each time, your creation is guaranteed to be original.
The only slight grumble is about the very small areas to be coloured: the number is sometimes difficult to read.
Otherwise, a really effective way of producing a piece of art.

Getting Boring now

Version 1.3
C'mon guys give us some more pictures huh?

Good idea but doesn't work properly

Version 1.3
First pic I tried "girl with a pearl earring", the larger areas do not fill AT ALL so I have big white spaces in my pic. The filling is generally very clunky - hard to get small areas from limited zoom and the fill goes outside the lines. It needs to be crisper.

Great app

Version 1.3
....but could be fantastic! I'm addicted to this app! I've coloured and shaded (which works even better) ever picture several times! The fill option needs sorting as you can't fill the section properly as the number gets in the way! And you can't zoom in far enough for the tiny sections, needs work other than that...love it! Time for some new pictures tho please! And how about a way to turn photos in your library into querkles?! I'd pay good money for that

Beautiful but limited

Tales from obscurity
Version 1.3
The idea of the app is really good and unlike some other colouring apps all the colours come for free. However, there is a quite limited number of free templates to colour and the colouring is not as easy as other apps as when zoomed in the picture gets a bit grainy. Still, it's definitely worth downloading just to try it.

Great App

Version 1.3
Well worth a free download.

Good but needs a few improvements

Version 1.3
Thought this was amazing I bought the coloring books of querkles but I don't want to pay any more money. It only gives you 6 to colour and you can really zoom in enough
I love the idea, it just needs a little work
1. More free pictures (maybe if you want to do two of the same one you pay for another save for that picture)
2. Be able to zoom in a little bit more so you can colour the small dots


Version 1.3
Using new ipad Air latest ios and constantly freezes and crashes. Nice idea, but just doesn't work.

Lovely.. but app's a bit dodgy

Version 1.3
It's Paint By Numbers, each one consisting of 5 colours. It's a peaceful way to pass the time, and it's mesmerising to see the image slowly appear. It's satisfying, addictive and a black hole for time.
But it's questionable on the mindfulness front..
I launched Groucho, but ended up colouring Frida. I realised halfway through it definitely wasn't Groucho, but completed it anyway. The completed image version was then saved against both Groucho and Frida. When I deleted one (Groucho) it deleted both. In hindsight I shouldn't have done this, but I'd hoped to get Groucho second time round. Hours of work gone.
A similar thing is happening with Marilyn.
I paid for the full collection of patterns, please fix this! I will adjust my rating after a successful update.
Edit: rating adjusted as this has now been fixed. Thank you

Version 1.3
Love the idea but since the update I'm unable to use for more than a few seconds, it keeps crashing on iPhone 6. Same for my daughter on iPhone 6.
Now it's been fixed, love it!

Goodness me what a shame

Version 1.2
Oh my!!!! What a complete disaster this latest update has been. What was advertised as a stress relieving app has actually been anything but. Whoever has been accountable for this update needs to be asked why? Surely if someone is tasked with updating an app they should not interfere with the basics to such an extent as to render the app unusable. Crashing, infill going over lines and the whole thing constantly freezing is just not acceptable.

Less relaxing since update!

Version 1.2
Since the update, the app has been extremely unresponsive and has completely crashed a couple of times! Most frustrating.

Love but not so much after update

Version 1.2
I used to love this app, great for stress relief but ever since it was updated not so much. Don't get me wrong I love the fact they've included a fill tool but it doesn't fill the shape properly, it goes out of the line. And it keeps crashing on me, it could do with being sorted out soon because something that's used to use for a bit of stress relief isn't so relieving anymore

Great app but disappointingly unstable

Version 1.1
Enjoyed colouring Lincoln & Ali. Started colouring another, went to show a friend &, although saved & there previously, Lincoln had been transposed with another part finished picture. Lincoln has gone! Another picture only brings up half of the face to colour. For a paid for app very disappointing!
